AXIS P1455-LE-3 for freeflow, slow-speed traffic

Ideal for license plate recognition in slow-speed traffic, such as city centers, access roads, and campuses, AXIS P1455-LE-3 can read license plates from 7-20 m (23-65 ft). For optimal license plate capture, the camera should be installed at heights between 3-10 m (10 -33 ft).

AXIS P3245-LVE-3 for vehicle access control

Ideal for automated vehicle access control solutions in garages or parking lots, the vandal-resistant AXIS P3245-LVE-3 can read license plates from 2-7 m (7-23 ft). For optimal license plate capture, the camera should be installed at heights up to 3 m (10 ft). To avoid blinding the camera with strong light it’s recommended to mount the camera above the level of the car’s headlights.

Optimal capture distance

As a rule of thumb, the capture distance should be approximately twice the mounting height. This is achieved when both the horizontal and vertical angle between the camera and the car is less than 30°. It’s also recommended to minimize the angle between the camera and the travel direction of the car so the license plates can be viewed head on.

  • For AXIS P1455-LE-3, the optimal camera angle is achieved when mounting the camera less than 10 m (33 ft) from the center of the lane.
  • For AXIS P3245-LVE-3, the optimal camera angle is achieved when mounting the camera less than 2.5 m (8 ft) from the center of the lane.
